Topic: OT: Great news/Answers to prayer (27 msgs / 768 lines)
1) From: Bryan Wray
Well with all of the negative emails that have been flying around lately as far as job loss, pets being attacked, etc. etc. I thought I would post some good news that recently happened in my life.  I wrote to the list a few days ago that I had lost my job at Dino's (I need to change my email signature...) and that the shop was going to go for the "well these beans will do until we can find something cheaper" business attitude.  2 days before I had my truck engine blow up (13 days after my warranty expired on an engine that I had to put in it 3 months before).  So now I had no job, no vehicle and no money to fix the vehicle (bank account around $50 overdrafted...).  All of this was happening as I was trying to save money to move to Chicago to work for Intelligentsia... how encouraging!  Merry Christmas right?
Well, NaDean was the previous owner of Dino's and NaDean's but after she sold her part of Dino's she was now just the owner of NaDean's.  She had no idea that the new owner of Dino's was going to fire me (and about 5 others) as soon as he took over the business and she was really disturbed by it.  NaDean, as proof of her being a great person and a one of a kind boss, gave up almost all of her shifts at the shop and 2 other baristi volunteered to give up some shifts and I now essentially have a job all over again (I worked at NaDean's twice a week before, so it's not a new job, but now I have a "full time" job all over again).  What an awesome boss.  Really, she is more of a friend than a boss, and this just proves it to me all over again.  NaDean has no money to be doing this right now; her bank account is right about where mine was during the job loss.  However, out of the kindness of her heart she is doing what she can to help push me to Intelli.  She told me, "I want to
 see you up there with Matt, Amber, and Heather one day and be able to know that I had a little something to do with getting you there."  (Referring to Matt Riddle, Amber Sather and Heather Perry...)  I almost cried.  It is so inspiring to me, I want to prove to her that I can do it and she will most definitely be one of the first people I thank if I ever make it on a national stage.  So, that's the job update...
The truck...
Again, what an awesome answer to prayer.  My family started going to a new mechanic about a year ago as soon as he opened his business.  He immediately proved himself to us with his awesome service and unbelievable speed in doing jobs.  We had a lot of really unfortunate car problems over the course of that year (all very old used vehicles... to be expected I guess...) and he cut us deal after deal after deal.  He even picked my mom up and dropped her off at the house one time when she was stranded.  When he got to the house, he noticed that my truck was sitting in the driveway with the hood up.  He asked what was wrong, I told him I had no idea, and her preceded to fix the vehicle in my driveway at no charge.  Needless to say, a one of a kind mechanic...  Upon realizing that I was once again going to have to put an engine in my truck that I had now owned for only a year, he told me that he would give me $3000 for the truck in it's current state.  The truck itself is only
 worth $5000, and that would be if it was running (which it's not) and in perfect condition (which it most certainly is not).  $3000!  Are you serious?  How awesome.  This will pay the truck off for me and I can borrow and use vehicles here and there for a couple months to help get me to work and back so that I can continue to save for this move to Chicago.
All in all this has been a week of answered prayer preceded by a week of frustration, confusion and anger.  I am so happy and inspired right now it's hard for me to put it in words.  Oh... and I am going to be getting a Nuova Simonelli MDX with new burrs in decent condition for $50 from Dino's because they don't need it.  Icing on the cake.

Awesome news, Bryan!  Kalamazoo keeps a great barista and you get back  
on your feet.  If NaDean has no budget for musicians, fear not--if our  
itinerary takes us through the area, we can play for the door or for  
tips (and keep it originals/public domain-only to keep ASCAP and BMI  
from shaking her down).
Happy New Year indeed,

Thanks for sharing with us - it is true - there has been enough 
sadness and hardship to go around, and it is refreshing (and more 
than a bit hopeful!) that things will turn around for many of us. A 
toast to you, and to all here in our little "family" for a bright new 
year full of possibilities!

Sandy,
I didn't realize when an artist played, the "host" was also responsible for extra fees beyond paying for the artist & equipment expenses.  I see how this could be very pricey.  Is the host responsible for keeping track of the songs & contacting ASCAP/BMI/SESAC/BLWWTGP?  This is an OT thread isn't it?  Glad I don't have to pay a performance fee for drinking such great coffee SM sells. ;^)
Paul
p.s.  Thanks for sharing such great news, Bryan!

ASCAP and BMI have been contacting venues (bars, clubs, some  
coffeehouses) and requiring them to purchase licenses to allow ASCAP  
and BMI-licensed songs to either be performed there live or played on  
the house stereo system (wonder lately why so many restaurants are  
playing radio and satellite radio stations?).  This license is paid to  
the organization annually and supposedly gets paid to the member  
writers and publishers as quarterly royalty payments along with those  
from surveyed radio and TV stations. In order to avoid having to buy  
such a license, a club must claim that the artists who perform there  
do only their own originals, songs in the public domain, or songs for  
which the writer has granted express permission to be performed  
royalty-free. And if the performer belongs to either of these  
organizations, some venues have been requiring them to sign a royalty  
waiver in order for them to perform their registered songs there or  
allow them to be played over the stereo.  ASCAP contends that an  
"originals-only" policy is impossible to enforce and therefore clubs  
must purchase licenses at least in token amounts ($200-1000/yr), but  
many venue owners are taking the position that the burden of proof is  
on ASCAP that covers are being played, and until then no license is  
necessary. No suits have yet been filed--they've either been settled  
for token fees or ASCAP/BMI have given up because they can't prove  
anything or the clubs have produced a sheaf of releases from  
performers.....but the smallest clubs, operating on a shoestring, have  
stopped having live music.
